    “It feels less like work and more like fun,” says Justin Cockburn about his role as a software development engineer at Audible.

  • Lisa Del Monte

    Sr. Manager, UX Design

    Lisa Del Monte is embedded in the design systems team, ensuring that from the start, Audible’s products and features employ best practices for the most inclusive experience. “UX happens very early in the project lifecycle, so if we get that right it sets us up for success.” This approach benefits all users because their team is also solving for issues most people will face, like making it easier to see the screen when standing in bright sunshine. "If you design for edge cases like motor and visual impairment, you’re creating a better product for everyone else."
